Dutch artist Marjan Teeuwen collects elements of abandoned buildings in cities around the world and repurposes them into installations which are aptly titled “Destroyed House”.
For KYOTOGRAPHIE 2020, Teeuwen was invited by the festival to spend January through April 2020 in Kyoto. In this time she tirelessly reconstructed two traditional kyomachiya townhouses procured by the festival for her exhibition.
This grand installation reassembles the original materials and spaces of the traditional kyomachiya. Teeuwen leaves the facade of the buildings intact while repurposing the fragments that were once columns and beams. She meticulously reconstructs the houses' destroyed interiors with precision and delicacy that create entirely new atmospheres.The transformed spaces hint at the tenuous balance between constructive order, function, and brute destruction.

All of Teeuwen’s installations globally are preserved for posterity in the form of photographic works.
